After seeing action from the White Group in Week 7 of the NCC Tennis League, attention is being shifted to the Blue Group this weekend where Team Muller leads the way.
Table toppers, Team Muller will come up against inconsistent VGC Lions at the National Stadium in Surulere, Lagos.
Team Muller have been in scintillating form all through the course of the competition. Winning in the North, South and West so far in the competition.
Team Muller won their first match against Team Civil Defence 4-3 at the Abuja National Stadium, the team went on to produce a much more convincing display against Team Optiwebb – winning 5-2 at the National Stadium, Lagos.
Team Muller then proved to everyone that there is nowhere like home – managing to defeat Team Kalotari 4-3 in Port Harcourt.
Their opponent, VGC Lions started the competiton in the best way possible – annihilating the Blue Grop’s whooping boys Team Oluyole at the Adamasingba Stadium in Ibadan 5-2.
It was always going to be difficult for them to secure victories in back to back away fixtures, as they lost scandalously to Team Kalotari 7-0 in Port Harcourt.
Playing their third fixture of the competition at the VGC Club Lekki, it was expected of them to play better than they did last time out. But it was not to be as they lost woefully right in front of their home fans to Team Civil Defence by 7-0.
Taking a good look at the group’s table, Team Muller can afford to be complacent – having won all of their previous matches.
As for VGC Lions, it’s a must win victory for them – so as to increase their chances of getting at least a 2 million Naira more from the organisers of the competition.
I foresee Team Muller winning convincingly, maybe 6-1.
The matches will go down at the National Stadium Surulere, Lagos from Saturday September 23rd – Sunday September 24th.
